    synaptic is broken - E: Dynamic MMap ran out of room.

    I tried to add the repositories for debian so that I could install basiliskii, but I'm not really sure how to do that, so I think I broke synaptic.

    now, synaptic won't run for very long. It comes up but pops up an error window

    Code:
    Reading package lists... Error!
    E: Dynamic MMap ran out of room. Please increase the size of APT::Cache-Limit. Current value: 25165824. (man 5 apt.conf)
    E: Error occurred while processing mbrola-hu1 (NewVersion1)
    E: Problem with MergeList /var/lib/apt/lists/http.us.debian.org_debian_dists_stable_non-free_binary-i386_Packages
    W: Unable to munmap
    E: The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.
    how would I remove these repositories?

    Hi, davethewave83.

    You could also increase your apt cache limit.

    This should help.

    the instructions add a . to the end of the file name. so it didn't work at first, I removed the . in the file name and now it does. Thanks!

    there's still no basiliskii available for download though, I can't figure it out.

    live and learn.
